  1. Sadly paint look a bit more worse for wear after it had the detailing done 2 years ago, it's hard to keep on top of black paint while living in a flat, hopefully that will change in the near future.
  2. Cheers pal got some body mods in the pipeline once the body shop opens again, nothing crazy will be OEM+
  3. Them wheels Car look mega clean too!
  4. Oh and managed to pick up a Greddy/Trust gear knob up from Japan! Always wanted one when my brother had one in his EVO VII back in the days, loved the look and feel of it, but when I looked a couple of years ago it was discontinued and trying to find a 2nd hand one was proving difficult. Luckily when I went on a random search it appear Greddy has re-released that style and I just had to get it!
  5. Managed to pick up a Kaaz 2 way diff and bought some bits along to fit while the diff is getting changed, gone for solid SPL diff bushings, Z1 solid subframe inserts as well as new diff bearings and diff oil seals.
  6. Last time I updated this post back in December I was in the midst of going through a Corona like virus, and now with this lockdown going on and no road trips/trackdays happening I thought I'll post a few things re the Z. Firstly had another alignment, raised the rear ride height a bit, adjusted the rear camber, with a bit of toe out at the front and bit of toe in at the rear, I think in the 8 years I have own the car this felt by far the best settings I've experienced, it turns in sharp, grips very very well and are totally predictable. Yet to trying out on track as it was cancelled amid the lockdown but I'm looking forward to it. The only thing that's annoying is the rear end bobs side to side during long fast cornering which I hopefully will remedy with parts I've listed further down.
  7. Brand new never fitted front and rear full kit, £65 incl P&P
  8. Went out for a drive in the Welsh back roads before the lockdown and I suspect the bushes on the 350z is long overdue, none too surprising as they are 16 years old and done 100k. The car feel vague and and loose whereas my friend's Cayman GT4 feel so direct and planted! Done some reading on the bushes Porsche uses and noticed they utilised solid bearings alot on their suspension. I do realised solid bushes will be harsher on roads but I would not mind that given I only uses it for trackdays and weekend blast. I don't mind a bit of NVH for the improve turn in and the planted feel, so can anyone who had the SPL bushes care to share their experience and which one they replaced? Thanks
  9. SP Motorsport LTD in Wigan sorted mine out, cut the rust and welded new metal on then waxoil after
  10. Another pic from Anglesey from a few months ago, can't wait to go again so I could see how much difference the seats gonna makes Ps also fitted Hardrace front upper camber arms as well, - 2.5f and - 3.5r camber atm, really looking forward to how the car feels after all those bits, coolerworx shifter possibly the next mod down the line
  11. Been stuck at home for a few days now with this chest infection, bored out of my mind so thought I will give this a little update, car run good as ever and been away to get the rust on the rear arch cut out and new metal welded in, previously had a filler job but its pointless as the rust comes back eventually. Oh and having some Buddyclub seats installed too on Bride rails #jdm Can't wait to pick the car back up!
  12. Any idea when this new version will be available? Thanks
  13. What was your best lap time for the Anglesey Coastal layout?
  14. Had an issue with the BC Coilovers knocking going over bumps on the offside rear, took it off and re-assemble the strut, which cured it, hopefully it would be useful for anyone who had the same problem with noisy coilovers.
  15. Don't care much for stonechips it's inevitable if you drive it, but trolley dents really does my head in as that is caused by other people lack of care
  16. Had the car fully paint corrected and ceramic coated a couple of weeks ago, was much needed as the paint was dull af.
  17. Front was fine the rear was rubbing over bumps before I had the arches rolled

    Spring rates

    I've got 8/6kg spring rates on my BC coilovers set at 10 from soft at the front and 8 from soft for daily driving, they ride great!
  19. Great day at Anglesey yesterday, would love a track prep E92 M3 now, they are on another level.
  20. Alright guys read a few threads re people suffering from clunking/metallic rattling noise coming from the rear after installing coilovers, the problem is on the rear coilovers doesn't come with a strut gasket therefore metal on metal creating rattling noise when over bumps, my friend help me to fix it tonight by sticking a piece of dynamat on top of the strut and please to say it works and no more rattling noise now. You can get a piece of dynamat for a few quid on eBay, cut a square piece roughly the size of the strut top, cut a cross in the middle, use the sticky side onto actual strut, then cut around the shape of the strut cover, re-install and enjoy the peace and quiet over bumps.
  21. Can you cut these down to size? Mines are too long currently and thinking of taking a dremel to it
  22. Was just looking through my inbox seeing what parts I've replaced/upgraded over the years, and just couldn't believe how all the traders on here help so much. Unlike many others who only seem to take money off you, every single trader I've spoken to on here was ready to give advice and gone beyond the normal customer service, when I first bought my 350Z I was disappointed to find one of the rear lens had a crack on it after I got it home, R35LEE offered to send me one FOS, what a great gesture that was, also Mitz who upgraded my postage to FedEx fos for the Cobra exhaust as I couldn't wait to replace the loud droney broken OEM exhaust, Zmanalex and Clark Performance for all other advices re the running and servicing, Abbey Motorsport for their advice on alignment settings. Good to know there's a good bunch on here to help us looking after our pride and joys. Keep up the good works guys
